PUPILS from schools on the north coast participated in the Tonver mini games held in Verulam recently.

The event attracted more 100 boys and girls coming from 12 different schools participating in different codes of sport.

Tonver president Guru Ramcharan said the mini games are a development games of soccer and netball for age division between eight and 10 years old while volleyball caters for boys and girls of 11 years old.

“If the enthusiasm, support and passion for sport in public schools demonstrated by the parents who attended in their numbers is anything to go by, then our pupils are in good hands in the Tonver region,” he said.

He said that parental attendance and support was most encouraging and their presence brought about the best in their children.

Ramcharan added: “This is the power of togetherness and supporting siblings at sport events which will surely rub off to attending to academic achievement as well. Not all could receive the silverware, but all went home with huge smiles determined to fight for gold again.

“This augurs well for sustaining interest in sport all through their schooling careers. We applaud parents for their wonderful gesture.”

Manager for Billy Nair Circuit Selvan Chetty said: “The KwaZulu-Natal Department of Education is fully supportive of the Tonver mini games which is a unique game in the country. It assists in preparing our pupils for future Tonver Games finals and provides a holistic development of our pupils. These mini games are the platform of future Tonver Stars. Congratulations to all the medallists and well done to coaches who go that extra mile to prepare our pupils,” he said.
